Imagine No Malaria

"Imagine No Malaria" has awakened the church to what disciples of Jesus can do to transform the world.  Just imagine what we can and will do next.

A small $10 donation will save one life.  The Detroit and West Michigan Conferences approved an effort to invite every United Methodist Church in Michigan to save the life of one person in Africa for every member of their faith community.  Our Michigan area goal is to save 150,000 lives by December 2014 by raising $1.5 million.
